    ok now im in some
    midpoint , trying to do
    perspective, people
    and a value study , is a lot
    of balls to juggle
    but is a good challenge trying to tweak
    some stuff and do rythim lines
    that connect people or guide the eye

    again , even if i try not to press
    the pencil too hard to not make
    everything lineworky, i try to describe
    shapes, mass etc. with value not linework

    more combos
    trying to find rythim lines
    organize elemnts by value too
    technique is not very good since
    most of the values are not constant
    and distract or dont communicate very well

    see as design more than a human, a chair etc
    focus on negative and positive spaces

    out of the tube color experiments
    on the usual ones like cadmiums and
    burnts, cobalts etc etc etc
    wich ones vibrate more?
    a saturated dark one againts a halftone
    not saturated or the classic low sat light
    high sat med and medium sat dark color
    tweak and experiment

    same as last one, this time
    i had my color wheel at the side
    of my laptop, so since PS sucks
    at color blending i tried to choose
    the transition color also how the local
    color will shift to dark or light
    depending on
    1)lightsource color intensity and temperature
    2)same but for environment

    i think im going too dark on the dark side
    too dark that sometimes the side just looks
    like other material or local color . . . gotta
    keep that in mind

    mmm this is different approach
    on the fly, didnt do any top view
    1) perspective lines
    2)silhouette of the mech
    3)local colors
    4)render
    5) add detail
    again im trying to do directly on color
    so it was quite a challenge but fun
    also used one layer so it would be more
    painterly approach

    i should had included some more graphic
    lines on the bottom fin specially passing
    through the cast shadow to give a better sence
    of the elemnts . . . oh well

    hope you guys not getting bored with all
    this exercises

    same approach as yesterday, on the fly
    quick sketch . . it was boring composition
    so i decided do a side top lighting
    to break the symetry a little, i lost some
    decal details while doing the final touches
    seeing from far and thinking mmm i should
    extend the cast shadow here and the like

    cast shadow on ground really helps for light direction
    and to see what overlaps what in light blocking
    gotta pay mo attention to that

    robogabo - Daily Robo sketches & Mo

    oh yeah today they said who went
    next round in thunderdome altough
    i disagree since i think my rival pieces
    where not evidently better than mine,
    but i guess is hard to judge artwork,
    i dont share same point of view
    with the judges particulary for my competition
    of course since i lost
    and didnt pass to next round
    . .
    i should work harder now
    and present my ideas
    in a clearer manner

    thanks to everybody for their support
    and messages , about the pixelcharacters
    i usually use the pencil tool, no antialias
    and do the silhouette, thats important, focu motion
    on contrasted elemnts or elemnts that are easy to follow
    like circles or simple objects, once the silhouette
    is solid i click on preserve transparency and work
    with pencil still the main shapes, then use a brush
    with soft edge(only inside silhouette) and do some
    coloring

    ok heres the process ive been doing
    for the last posts, is different since
    i try do it fast and follow instincts on what ive learned
    i only see the mistakes so is hard to enjoy
    is another exercise, must keep on
    you can see how the piece gains momentum
    and where i start showing all my lack of artistic
    skill and go downhill specially cant seem to
    tie up at the end and end up doing unnecesary things

    a small tribute to those wonderful japanese shooters

    i do this sketches and just get me
    all nervous cause is hard to control
    sketch and proportions
    directly on the wacom, thats why
    Dan milligan is such a master, i included
    the sketch so you guys can see how it
    changed, so imagine doing a resemblance
    one directly digital . . . really stresfull i think
    lack of knowledge and technique i think
